General Information

Slemish Barn
common room 1

Slemish Barn is a newly opened, boutique style hostel offering self catering, budget accommodation for up to 18 people in four en suite rooms. It is situated in the Braid Valley between the award winning floral village of Broughshane and the picturesque fishing village of Carnlough, in the shadow of Slemish mountain where St. Patrick is reputed to have lived. This area is known as the Gateway to the Glens and is only a short distance from Glenariff.

The area offers excellent facilities for walking, cycling, fishing and outward bounds activities.

Self-catering cooking and laundry facilities are provided as well as catering options for groups.

Slemish Barn can offer facilities for functions, small conferences and parties with two large function rooms and other meeting rooms.

We have strong connections to traditional music in the area, specifically the Counties Antrim and Derry Country Fiddlers Association, which is one of the largest traditional fiddling schools in the island of Ireland and celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2013. Slemish Barn aims to establish itself as a cultural centre for arts activities in the area.

We also have a strong sustainable theme with significant green energy systems. The building has been built and furnished with reclaimed and second hand materials where possible.
